Terra Magna - 0 A.D. Civilization Mod

Terra Magna mod adds new civilizations to the free and open source real-time strategy game 0 A.D. The following civilizations are added by the mod:

  • Han China
  • Zapotecs

The Terra Magna mod was formerly known as Rise of the East. A new name for the mod was necessary after we added the Zapotec and Kushite civilization. Therefore, the Terra Magna mod is a continuation of the Rise of the East mod with extended content.

Han China

Adds Han China as faction to 0 A.D. The Han dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) was the second great imperial dynasty of China. Preceded by the Qin dynasty (221 - 207 BC) and succeeded by the Three Kingdoms period (220 - 280 AD). The Han dynasty lasted over four centuries. It is considered a golden age in Chinese history, because China made significant progress in arts and sciences during the Han period.


Adds the Zapotec faction to 0 A.D.


{Will be added after the transition and migration of the Rise of the East mod is finished.}

There is only one download option for every version, because the same mod can work across all platforms 0 A.D. can run on. This means you only need one ZIP file regardless if you are using Windows, Linux or macOS.

Our current goal is to complete the Zapotecs and Chinese factions. Any help is welcome to achieve this goal.
